How to capture exactly the same region again on Snagit for Mac

I've switched to Snagit from Snapz and so far I'm liking it. There are so many more options. However, there's one feature from Snapz that I used all the time and that I cannot find in Snagit: I often have to take a screenshot of a part of my screen that does not fall within the predefined presets that you get when dragging the orange rectangle. Is there a way that I can get exactly the same capture (width x height) with exactly the same coordinates (x and y)y coordinates again?
See below: I want to capture the highlighted region (a histogram in Lightroom) for different images and I want the position and size to be exactly the same for each histogram... How can I do this as easily as possible in Snagit?

A "Repeat Last Capture" hotkey was added to Snagit Mac a part of 4.1.2 this past Tuesday 3/14/2017.

You can find the hotkey in Snagit > Preferences.

Thank you for all your feedback, it helped us prioritize adding the hotkey over setting up a fixed region before capturing. Which could still be useful in certain situations. We will definitely keep it in mind going forward.
